Happy New Year, Christopher Lee, ye of the eternally sexy voice. I hope you live long enough to see the Hobbit movies out.

(Here’s Mr. Lee pretending to be dead, and doing other cool things).

In part 1 he talks about the state of the world, appearing in Wicker Tree, Hugo (calling Martin Scorsese ‘Marty’ n__n),  Dark Shadows (with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp); playing Saruman the White in The Hobbit; and turning 90 years of age.
